Georges Joubin was born in 1888 in Digny, France.
Joubin studied at the Académie Julian in 1906 in the atelier of Jean
Pierre Laurens. Later he attended l'École des Beaux-Arts and studied
with Gabriel Ferrier.
Joubin settled in first atelier in 1911 on the Rue de la Gaité in
Montparnasse. He exhibited at the Salon des Indépendants beginning in
1912. He exhibited in the following years at the Salon d'Automne,
Salon des Tuileries, and exhibited with and was a member of the
committee at the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts.
In 1919 Joubin participated in the founding of l'École de Montmartre
with André Dignimont, Asselin, Jules Pascin, and Pierre Bonnard.
Joubin was a bold and almost reckless modernist. His technique was
that of the Post Impressionists, he represented his subjects using
geometry like the Cubists, and the resulting imagery is classically
"School of Paris." He painted nudes, beach scenes, still lifes, and
portraits, always with the same enthusiasm.
